Local Housing Strategy

Our strategic vision and priorities for the future of housing and related services over 2021-2026 across North Lanarkshire

The Local Housing Strategy (LHS) is the main overarching plan for housing. It sets out our housing priorities and the actions we will take to achieve our vision, which is:

‘To make North Lanarkshire the place to live, through the provision of high-quality housing and support in sustainable communities, that enables people to thrive and prosper’

The strategy plays an important part in delivering our ambition set out in The Plan to make North Lanarkshire the place to live, learn, work, invest and visit, and is closely connected and aligned to other key plans and strategies such as the Local Development Plan, the Town Visions, and the Economic Regeneration Delivery Plan.

The strategy will help deliver real improvements to people’s lives, by:

  • Continuing to build much needed new affordable homes, reducing poverty, boosting the local economy and improving outcomes
  • Improve the quality and energy efficiency of housing, helping reduce fuel poverty and helping achieve our net-zero climate change target
  • Delivering a range of support services to help people achieve their potential, be healthy and included
  • Helping create sustainable and attractive communities, through tackling empty homes and low demand and regenerating areas and places

The strategy was developed following extensive consultation and involvement with the people of North Lanarkshire and partners. We will review progress each year and publish the annual review report on this page.
